Upcoming February/March launch will be key test of RIM's remaining draw

While there's still a hearty helping of gloom and doom surrounding embattled Canadian smartphone-maker Research in Motion, Ltd. (TSE:RIM), there's also been recent signs that could raise the hope that the company could survive the rocky and delay-filled BlackBerry 10 launch.  Lower than expected defections and better than expected financials have raised some cautious optimism among beleaguered investors.

The latest leak from the BlackBerry space is the leak of a single image of the full-QWERTY N-Series model, which is likely to be named the BlackBerry X10.  For those who aren't BlackBerry veterans, RIM's keyboards are widely regarded as the best in the industry, making tapping out a quick email much less tedious (and less autocorrect-filled) than using a touch screen.

The new device, though, tweaks the traditional formula a bit, straightening out the curved keyboard into straight lines.  It was clear not all readers on the enthusiast site CrackBerry were fans of the change, with some going as far as to say they hoped the images were fake.

As with any device image leak, the authenticity is open for debate, but CrackBerry tends to have a relatively impressive record leaking past devices.  What do BlackBerry fans think?  Is this the keyboard you're looking for, or has RIM gone too far?

I hope the new OS is as good as the hardware

If the new BB10 Os is fluid and fast at least like Jelly Bean, I think I will get rid of my pearl and get this one. App doesn't matter that much right now, I just need one that doesn't need to be restarted once a day because of unresponsive.

I've had an iPhone now for 3 months and I can't wait to use a BB again. And as most of us, the problem was the OS. But that beeing said, if this is settled, I'll certainly get my hands on a BB10 FOR SURE.
